To Provide Soft loans For Previous Beneficiaries
The Federal Government has shortlisted 550,000 applicants for the final selection for Batch C of the N-Power programme.
The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development Sadiya Farouq, said this at a press briefing on Tuesday.
She said the 550,000 short-listed applicants were being individually contacted through the e-mail addresses provided by them.
Farouq advised applicants to first check and immediately log on to the NASIMS self-service portal to enrol their biometric data which would lead them to the final selection.
“500,000 will be finally selected nationwide to serve as the first stream of the N-Power Batch C programme. This is the Batch C1. The second batch of another 500,000 will subsequently be made in line with Mr President’s directive to engage 1,000,000 beneficiaries under the Batch C.” The Minister explained.
It was gathered that the Central Bank of Nigeria will support Batches A and B beneficiaries who had completed the N-Power programme with soft loans.
